19 days agoNaNoWriMo is over. Now what? First off, I want to thank all the writers who made this a very wonderful year of writing. We have written more than 5 million words. Guys, that's impressive! We had a great showing at the write ins, and particularly the online sprints on the Facebook group. I'm very proud of all the writers from the ones who wanted to start, but never did to the ones who were cheering each other across the finish line last night.
Please also give a great round of applause to my co-ML boomchick whom many of you were able to meet as Lucy this year. She's stepping down as ML but she's staying around as a wrimo. I couldn't have done what we did without her.
I'm hoping to keep things going through the winter doldrums, maybe some get togethers for editing and revising. There will also be Camp Nanowrimo in April and July of 2015 if you want to mark your calendars now. Keep checking the forum and this page as any future events between now and next October will be kept here where everyone can find them.

about 1 month agoI know Lucy already posted a note, but I also wanted to thank everyone for coming out tonight! Over on Facebook, NaNoWriMo is trending on my feed! I'm so excited for all our writers today! Thank you so much for coming out tonight! If you need anything, questions, plot bunnies or ideas, life strategies, or just suggestions for food that's easy to eat while typing or good music to listen to, don't hesitate to drop us a line, here, FB or even the Twitter. Guys, as a group, we're halfway* to one full novel being written..just today! *27,390 words as of this posting for the region!

2 months agoAPOLOGIES! Lucy(boomchick) the ML here! I went on autopilot and scheduled my write ins for Wednesdays like usual, but they are actually on Tuesdays this year! SO sorry for the confusion. I will probably also be up to writing Wednesdays though.
Once again, sorry for the mix up!
